    One of my BOs is now laying white eggs. She's always laid brown eggs. What gives? Should I be worried? She is almost 11 months old. No change in feed.

    I think it's normal. My BR changes color to some degree every time I give her a new food...

    One of my EE lays bluish/green eggs one day and pink/brown eggs the next day. I really thought another hen had started to lay (the EE is the only one laying so far) but then I saw her lay the brown, so I know for sure she's doing both.
